UNC DentistrE News

December 5, 2012

Dear Friend of the UNC School of Dentistry,

‘Tis the season ... for final exams and winter break! Our D.D.S. and D.A. students are in the throes of exams currently, and our D.H. and post-D.D.S. students start theirs later this week. The halls are decked here at the school - complete with Carolina blue ornaments! - and we’ll all be enjoying the holidays before we know it.

Last week, the school received some news that can finally be shared and enjoyed by all: our UNC Craniofacial Center won the ADEAGies Foundation Award for Outstanding Achievement in the academic dental institution category! We’re all thrilled that UNC CFC received such a high honor from the ADEAGies Foundation in recognition of the wonderful, life-changing care they provide patients each day. You can read more about the award and UNC CFC here.

Our dental hygiene faculty recently collaborated with our student service group ENNEAD to host their first inservice for Orange County School health nurses on dental health. The event, titled the Orange County Oral Health Collaboration, hosted approximately 25 attendees, including representatives from the NC Oral Health Section and the Orange County Smart Smiles Program. Program organizers hope the meeting encouraged continued collaboration between dentistry, dental hygiene and nursing in the county to help meet the dental needs of the school age children. More information on the meeting is available here.

We know this is a busy time of year of gift buying and food donating, and understand it can be easy to overlook giving to the School of Dentistry. But if you haven’t done so yet this calendar year, please consider making a tax-deductible contribution to the Dental Foundation of North Carolina to support the School of Dentistry. Click here to give online, or contact our office (, 919.537.3257) to discuss your giving options. 

As the calendar year comes to an end, we want to sincerely thank each of you for your support and interest in our school. We truly believe this is a special place that provides top-tier dental education, and your support is one of the reasons our school is considered on of the nation’s best. We look forward to a successful, wonderful 2013 with each of you! From our family to yours, we wish you a wonderful holiday season!

Happy Holidays!

Director of Communications, UNC School of Dentistry
